    Summary

    But Steve’s true attention was captured at the girl’s reaction to Bucky’s voice.
    Suddenly, she was upright, alert, her hands clenched into fists. He finally got a good look at her face; high cheekbones, square jaw. Gray eyes wide and full-lashed. Her hair hung around her ears in kinks, brown and dirty. But her expression was full of wonder, happiness, love—and she was staring at Bucky.

    Or, more colorfully titled, Becoming the Proud Parent of a Government Experiment in Eight Parts.

    Summary

    Bucky sits on the edge of her bed, far away enough to allow her to decide if she doesn’t want him that close. He holds out his palms, the same way Natasha had, and Nina says the first word anyone has heard her say.
    “Papa!”
    “What?” Steve says as Bucky’s eyes go wide. It would be comical if the entire situation just weren’t so weird.

    It seemed to be a fairly standard mission. Go to Russia, find out why people are guarding an abandoned HYDRA base, sort them out, come home. Steve and Bucky did not expect to find a tiny child who insists that Bucky is her "papa".

    Summary

    Zayn's dad explained it to him in a small speech, the day she was born.

    "No one prepares you for it. There aren't any manuals. Sometimes being a good parent means simply keeping your kid alive. Keep them breathing, make sure they're safe, love them until you could burst with it. On days when everything feels especially hard, just remember that your kid is Number One. Everything else becomes secondary. Less than. Minuscule by default. And believe me when I tell you this: when she eventually paints you a picture, sings you a song, does a cartwheel... always be sure to clap. If you're proud, make sure to say so."

    An AU about being a father, having faith, and growing up.

    Summary

    Written for the Alpha/Beta/Omega Bigbang Challenge. Jensen is a lonely omega who works as a librarian in Austin, TX. He spends his afternoons reading aloud to the local elementary school kids, wishing that his life were different and that he could have a child of his own, but its just not possible. He befriends Jason, a sweet bright little boy who loves to read and seems just as lonely as he is. Then he meets Jason's father, Jared, a handsome alpha who spends too many hours working at the hospital and, in Jensen's opinion, not enough time with his son. Jensen confronts him about it and they have words, Jared telling him in no uncertain terms to mind his own business. Jensen writes him off as a major prick, which is why he's not at all happy to see him at the library again the very next day - especially since Jensen's heat picks that moment to hit him hard. Jared steps up to help him through it, and as they learn more about each other he gives Jensen reason to hope that maybe the things he wants most aren't so far out of his reach after all.
